This is one of my early projects, it actually started because my grandma had recently retired and when I went to visit she told me that her kitchen had been ruined and she needed to go back to work. I couldn’t have that so I told her that I would make her a new kitchen (I found out later that she actually didn’t believe me). Boy was she surprised!
I didn’t have a lot of money to work with so I made the cabinets with the best sturdiest materials that I could afford. These cabinets are constructed of what was labeled as “cabinet grade” 3/4” plywood that was $28 a sheet (what a deal). the face frames are also the same plywood. The doors are furniture grade pine frames and luan inserts. The backs of the cabinets are 3/4” bc grade plywood (for strength). The finish is 3 coats of minwax polyshades. I also installed the cabinets and built the tiled counter top as well.
